Hi there. It's interesting how this post has taken a different direction than initially intended. There isn't a requirement to turn 90 degrees, only a requirement to make a reasonable turn with the trailer without making contact with the bed of the truck at the tailgate.
I've never driven, or seen, a travel trailer where the front of the cap is so close to the pivot point on the hitch, and the result of the distance allows the truck and trailer to make contact, prior to even getting to 90 degrees.
So, my initial question, simply stated, is: "has anyone with a 314BHDS experienced contact with their tow vehicle"?
Thank you very much for your research and interest. I have an open inquiry with Jayco to review the issue, and will post their findings once received.
